Wow! Long time since I've been ripped off to this extent! >$30 for an "entree" that was barely the size of a typical starter. Seated at the bar, and I practically had to beg for service. Woefully disappointing. Had to go elsewhere for another proper meal straight after!!!

At first, service was excellent, almost excessive. We were told that a new employee was being trained. By the end of the meal, however, we could not raise anyone's interest. Before walking out without paying, I asked the reception personnel to raise someone. Even after that, it took at least ten minutes to show up. As it turned out, our... More

Ordering the prime cheeseburger and fries for the $9 happy hour price tag was a welcome surprise! I understand they offer happy hours M-F until 7:00 pm. This expanded time period really helps me as I always seem to miss the happy hours that end earlier!

First time at Ruth's Chris. Informed the receptionist it was our 51st Anniversary and we were made to feel we were special guests with Rose petals on the table and a special dessert. Very good wine list and above average food and friendly service.

The food was fine, as you would expect, especially at these prices. There is a lot of waffle, like steaks are fried at 500 F - well so what? I wouldn't know if it's true or not, and in any case why would I care. It's a steak, it tastes of steak - good enough. Nice white linen on the... More

Had a very nice evening of drinks and dinner! Management and staff are very accommodating. I had made a reservation for the dining room, but changed my mind; I wanted to dine at the bar; no problem whatsoever! I ended up ordering the Ruth's Classic Filet Mignon; it came out perfect; rare (I asked to see blood and was not... More

This is my second visit to this venerable steak restaurant. Excellent waitservice and good food was had by all. I had the petite ribeye steak. Good flavoring but a wee bit too much fat and gristle for my liking.

This has been my favorite steak restaurant for many years and we recently decided to try their bar food enticement for a change. I was a set menu for their current $9 deal and we were pleased. Small plate presentations were up to their upscale reputation. Spicy Shrimp, Tenderloin Skewer Salad, and Steak Sandwich were great. We look forward to... More

Yes the restaurant is on the pricey side, but it is not a place you go to often and i would pay a little more for great food. The service was excellent and the food is delicious. My husband loved the steak and the sangria is probably the best I've ever had.

Thank michelle r
